Reviews

"[a] heartfelt story of a loving Greek family from the perspective of Lexie, an otherwise honest do-gooder who is trying to understand that not all lies are the same. End pages include Greek recipes and a note about the author that's just as interesting as the novel. " - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Told in Lexie's bouncy, naive first-person voice, and peppered with margin doodles and pages from the notebook Lexie uses to organize her thoughts, the story explores the raw vulnerability that comes with experiences of envy, loss, and guilt." - Horn Book
"Deals with some seriously tough young-person issues... [and] celebrates Greek traditions, culture, food, and the quirks of Greek family life with sincere humor and clear affection" - Booklist
"Enhanced with black-and-white doodles in the margins, this heartfelt tale demonstrates how families overcome upheavals with wisdom and hope." - Kirkus Reviews
